12 Actors Who Walked Away From Hollywood (Or Did They?)

Posted in Entertainment on Jan 17th, 2019


Actors spend so long building their career, attending auditions, trying to get their big break at fame, and when it all happens, it can be nothing like they envisioned. Some of the biggest and most successful actors of all time have walked away from a career in Hollywood for various reasons, but something seems to drag them back in. We’ve found the 12 Actors Who Walked Away From Hollywood to try and figure out what pushed them to leave the spotlight, and what made some of them return.

12. Alec Baldwin

The funnyman has always flirted with the idea of leaving show business for good, but something always seems to pull him back. Alec Baldwin made a name for himself on SNL like so many other comedic legends, and when filming wrapped on the now iconic 30 Rock series, Baldwin claimed he was done with acting for good. “Movies are part of my past,” he said. “It’s been 30 years. I’m not young, but I have time to do something else.” The film credits would tell another story though, as we’ve since seen Alec on films like Blue Jasmine, Boss Baby, and Still Alice, with more lined up in the future.
